yeah! It was intense, one of the best ones I've felt up here. The first rumble I thought was a truck parked outside but then it hit. Even though I was in the 89 Bay Area quake I was leaving my job at Soutshore in Alameda so there was nothing that could fall one me, so I have a tendency to really enjoy earthquakes. My buddy who was in the Northridge ( wasnt that the one? the southern cal one ) quake had an opposite experience so he's terrified.

I was in Squaw Valley for the '89 quake and was mountain biking on a fire access road and we felt a slight tremor and the trees swayed - pretty damn far from the epicenter. My folks, however, had flown into SFO from NC right after hurricane hugo and checked into their little b and b in the marina district at 4:30ish. They had a few interesting days...

Wow if it were me I'd probably want to stay away from my parent for awhile since natural disasters were following them. Either that or buy them tickets to some place you really didnt like or where there were people you didn't like.

We had a nice 6.8 quake here is SEA a few years back. I was out in a big open field with 250' Doug Firs all around the edges. The ground moved like the swells of the ocean...slowly up and then down, I started getting sea sick, it was very wierd. The big trees were swaying violently but none fell. As soon as it stopped all you could hear were car alarms going off everywhere as everything else had come to a stop.

'72 Dark Stars are the $#!+!. Hard to not want one of those on the desert Isle.
